Drug Addiction Treatment

Battling Drug Addiction in South Beach

South Beach Drug Detox

All of our treatment programs begin with drug detox. Drug detox serves to cleanse your body of all substance abuse so that rehab can take place. As your body is cleansed of drug toxins, you may feel withdrawal symptoms such as fever, sweating, shivering, body cramps, etc. It is also normal for detox patients to experience strong negative emotions such as anxiety, depression and fear. For this reason, your detox procedure is well supervised by a competent physician who can help you through this difficult time. You don't have to worry about handling withdrawal symptoms alone as our staff will provide sufficient help and support to see you through.

Another medication which can be used is LAAM. It is also a synthetic opiate like methadone used for the treatment of heroin addiction. It can block the effects for up to 72 hours when taken orally. It eliminates the need for daily dosing and weekend home doses because of the longer duration for which it lasts. For this reason, it was approved in 1993 to be used for treatment purposes.

Although there are different treatment methods and drugs available for the treatment of heroin addiction, controlling the availability of this drug is a crucial aspect that needs to be stressed upon. In South Beach , the rising trend of heroin addiction attributes to mainly cheap availability of heroin which should be curbed in order to suppress substance abuse.

The Treatment for Heroin Addiction

The treatment for heroin addiction will have a new advancement once the heroin vaccine is able to prove successful on humans.

Right now, however, a combination of treatment and constant motivation will help the addict to endure the withdrawal symptoms and get rid of the addiction.

If you know someone who suffers from heroin addiction, get them help immediately. Contact the nearest South Beach rehab center for further information, guidance and treatment plans.

Anti-Cocaine Vaccine Development Takes a Major Leap Forward

South Beach is a state with many substance abuse problems. Second to marijuana in opiates, cocaine, haunts its addicts with serious ailments. Although several treatment options are available, cocaine does not have a vaccine available in the market just yet. Undergoing several lab tests, anti-cocaine vaccines provide a glimmer of hope for thousands of addicts who have failed to achieve any success through conventional treatment methods.

For about a century, researchers and pharmacists have tried to create vaccines for several drug addiction issues. The early 1970s saw scientist develop a vaccine for heroin addiction, from different derivatives of morphine. The research withered away though, due to the availability of methadone, which helped heroin addicts stop using the drug. Funded by the National Institute of Drugs Abuse, recently, researchers at Cornell Medical College have successfully tested an anti-cocaine vaccine in mice and primates.
